This musical channels the Lennon Sisters-style song presentation in a slightly satirical vein - very pure, sweet and innocent, with wonderful harmonies and voices. It was lovely from start to finish with no slow parts and fun audience...continued

Good old fashion fun, great combination of laughter and traditional musical numbers. They all have excellent voices, the TV monitors showing old tv footage was an effective touch.

This was a great holiday show - just slurpy enough to poull your heartstrings, and with Alamdeda's christmas lights decorating the way to/from the theater it was really a delightful evening.
